Vitacost L-Glutamine Powder -- 4500 mg per serving - 2.2 lbs (1000 g)

Strengthen and defend yourself against stress and muscle fatigue! What is L-glutamine? L-glutamine is an amino acid found in a proportionally high amount in the body compared to other amino acids. Scientists consider L-glutamine to be a conditionally essential amino acid meaning its intake is not normally required in the diet. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in blood plasma and a major transporter of nitrogen. It is an important precursor for protein synthesis and it supports cellular functions of all types. L-glutamine is also a precursor of L-glutamate (an amino acid involved in energy metabolism). How does L-glutamine support health? . Assists in the process of exercise recovery and helps maintain nitrogen/ammonia balance for better muscle metabolism.*.  Helps maintain normal function of the entire gastrointestinal tract.*.  Under physiological stress L-glutamine may have to be supplied by diet to maintain normal gut liver immune and muscle function.*. Why choose Vitacost L-Glutamine? Delivers 4500 mg of L-glutamine per 1-teaspoon serving.  Mixes easily with water or juice; no blender required!  Contains 222 servings per container.  High quality at an incredible value!

A lot of product for the price!
 March 1, 2013
"Just started taking this product reccomended by my trainer who swears by this product and company name. Not enough time to tell if I have noticed a difference in how I feel. Best to put into a water bottle so you can shake before drinking, as it settles to the bottom."

high quality as expected!
 January 27, 2013
"this vitacost glutamine powder seems high quality without the high quality price from the name brands! I have compared this to higher priced powders and seems the same although you cant beat this vitacost price! 222 SERVINGS FOR 30 BUCKS!!! my only complaint would be that the serving is 4.5 grams instead of 5 but at the price I just add a little more. I definitely recommend vitacost glutamine over the higher priced brands out there!"

Can't beat this price for L-Glutamine powder!
 December 7, 2012
"Vitacost is the best place to buy L-Glutamine powder. You can't beat the price and FREE shipping and handling is an added bonus! I'll be purchasing another two bottles when I start running low. For anyone wondering you must buy the powder. You have to take too many pills to get the amount of L-Glutamine you need. The powder is great because you can add it to water, juice, coffee or anything you choose because it has no flavor."

Good and Bad Features
 September 16, 2012
"This product mixes very well and works great for workout recovery.....my only issue is the taste....it actually makes me gag sometimes lol But its cheap and if you mix it with your protein powder you don't get the taste.....If your a taste person you might not like this product."
